  1. We received a comment from a student at Tsukuba University:

    This photo was most probably taken in China. It says, “There are also chrysanthemum flowers in China too. Chrysanthemum flowers and me.” Other characters are difficult to decipher (old characters), but it may be, “Letter from the barracks”. It seems that this man was dispatched to China by the Army.

    筑波大学の学生さんからコメントをいただきました:

    おそらく中国で撮影された写真かと思います。『中国にも菊の花はあります。菊の花と小生(私)』と書かれています。その他の文字は判読できませんが、『兵舎内よりの便り』(旧字体)かもしれません。陸軍から中国に派遣された方のようです。

  2. 菊花も支那にあります
    菊花に┉(あとは読めません)

    中国で撮影された写真なのかもしれません。

    • 「菊花に小生 仮兵舎内にて」ではないでしょうか。軍事郵便の可能性も。
      It can read “Chrysanthemums are in China too. Me and
      chrysanthemums at a hutment”

    • Translation of Minori’s comment 14 April 2021:

      It says: Chrysanthemum flowers are also found in China
      Chrysanthemum and ┉ (I can’t read the rest)

      This photo may have been taken in China.
